I don’t think we’re going to fix Linux kernel bugs ourselves, so please add this to the known issues page (note: the brand & model of the laptop is most likely more relevant that the Wi-Fi adapter details). I see plenty of similar reports online, so let’s assume we don’t need to report this upstream, ourselves.

> All the WhisperBack reports that we received with the Wi-Fi adapter in 2018 add working Wi-Fi, so I’m rejecting this ticket.
It’s great to check this data to prioritize our work :)
Note that this data is only relevant to the problem at hand if the
acer_wmi module was loaded.
